Re: Too Much, Too Soon?

"Stop the boat."
Mark, that's usually impossible while you're flying a chute. In order to do a MOB recovery while flying the chute, you have to do a high speed pickup.

Blowing the chute, stopping the boat, all fine concepts but then you are no longer flying the chute. I mean, I've seen all sorts on interesting theatre with a chute, but I've never seen someone stop a boat while stilll flying it. (WEG)
